A jar of Mayonnaise is worth a lot in Stardew Valley.

The game retains a lot of real-life rules including how to make certain products, so it’s no surprise that you can also make Stardew Valley mayo with eggs. But with the various kinds, sizes, and qualities of the eggs in-game, it can be confusing to keep track of which kinds result in different qualities of mayo. 

This article will tell you what to expect when you have a jar of this delicious spread in your inventory.

What is Mayonnaise?

It’s an artisan good made with eggs using the Mayonnaise Machine. Different kinds of eggs will result in different qualities or quantities. For example, Ostrich Eggs make ten jars in one go! 

As much as we’d love to eat it, it’s unfortunately inedible in the game. However, you can use it in recipes to get its restorative benefits and sell it for a price depending on its quality.

How to Get Mayonnaise?

Simply put any egg into the Mayonnaise Machine and wait for three hours to make this artisan good. The table below shows what kind of mayo different eggs make:

EggMayonnaise
Normal-sized white or brown chicken egg1 jar, Regular
Large white or brown chicken egg1 jar,  Gold
Ostrich Egg10  jars, Silver or Iridium
Golden Egg3 jars, Gold
You can produce different qualities or quantities with different eggs.
